I love you so much. Things just aren't the same without you, but we're all doing our best to honor the traditions you created and carry your spirit of love on. I know you're at peace, and I'm so glad you're no longer in pain. You lived a beautiful, full life and never backed down from a challenge. You'll never be forgotten Nana.
Forever and always,
Love Haley
